Professor Toussaint presented at NSF Workshop

Professor Kimani Toussaint served as a panelist in session four of the National Science Foundation workshop, Advancing Organic/Biodevices – Sensing, Stimulation and Communication, focusing on the intersection of semiconductor devices and biological sensors and control. The workshop aimed to develop a vision for directed research in future innovations in semiconductors and related materials, both to promote economic growth and continued U.S. leadership in this critical sector.


Professor Toussaint named to AIMBE 2021 Class of Fellows

Professor Kimani Toussaint has been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows. Representing a select group of the top two percent of medical and biological engineering professionals, the College of Fellows is comprised of outstanding bioengineers in academia, industry and government. Professor Toussaint becomes the sixth AIMBE Fellow from Brown University.

AIMBE is a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., representing the most accomplished individuals in the fields of medical and biological engineering. Its mission is to provide leadership and advocacy in medical and biological engineering for the benefit of society.


Professor Toussaint appointed to board of reviewing editors for Science

Professor Toussaint was recently named to Science magazine’s Board of Reviewing Editors (BoRE). The board members offer expert advice to senior editors at Science, and Professor Toussaint was pegged for his expertise in bio imaging and nanophotonics. Congratulations!


Open Postdoc Position

Applications are open in the PROBE Lab in Brown University’s School of Engineering for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the emerging area of ‘classically entangled’ optical fields. Such fields exhibit coupling between two or more intrinsic degrees-of-freedom, e.g., position and polarization, and offer intriguing possibilities for many applications including real-time polarimetry, communicating through turbid media, and diffraction- and dispersion-free plasmonic wave packets. Research activities will mostly comprise developing and carrying out hands-on optical experiments, but a portion of the work would require appropriate simulation modeling. Qualified candidates should have completed or be very near completing their Ph.D. in physics or electrical engineering (or related STEM field) and should have a strong foundation in electromagnetics. Previous experience with classical or quantum optics, statistical optics, and/or plasmonics, as well as with modeling in MATLAB, COMSOL and Lumerical, is preferred, but not required. Research in the PROBE Lab at Brown University generally focuses in the areas of bioimaging, plasmonics, nanomanufacturing, and polarization vector fields. Candidates for this position must exhibit a strong work ethic, good interpersonal skills, and be willing to positively contribute to a diverse and inclusive, interdisciplinary research environment. This position is immediately available, and will remain open until filled. Inquiries should be sent to:
